Al Gore should know better than to tempt the inverse law of global warm-mongering:

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore’s second book about global warming will be published in April with the title “An Inconvenient Truth,” his publisher Rodale Books said on Tuesday.

Great timing, Al:

Bone-chilling Arctic weather claimed dozens more lives in Europe Monday after an already deadly weekend, with 24 freezing deaths in as many hours in Ukraine alone, and rising tolls in Turkey, Poland, Russia and Germany … glacial temperatures swept the Baltics to the Balkans, brought rare snowfalls to Istanbul and sparked a scramble for heating fuel …

“You’d have to go back at least 10 years, sometimes 20 years, to find such sharp colds,” said Patrick Galois, a meteorologist with Meteo-France …

The last time the [Czech Republic ] saw such cold weather was 66 years ago, in 1940, when the temperature dropped to a record 31.5 below zero, the meteorological office told the Czech News Agency.

This terrifying era of global warming is too cold for penguins:

At the zoo in Dresden, Germany, 21 Humboldt penguins were moved from their minus 6 outdoor environment into a building where the temperature was a more comfortable 32 degrees to ensure their feet didn’t freeze, zoo director Karl Ukena said.

Humboldt penguin yesterday, screaming for heat.
